    out of office vs meeting assignment (Outlook 2000 SP2)

    If I had my "out of office" turned on and someone scheduled a meeting during my out of office time, would I still get an meeting request email? Would the sender get the meeting request sent back to them because I was out of office? I missed a meeting when I got back and was just wondering.... <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    1. Yes, it should be sitting in your Inbox (unless a delegate responded for you).
    2. No, but they would get your OOO message on the first message of any kind they sent you, and they would not get any response (Accept, tentative, Decline) message from you

    You didn't ask, but assuming your block out your absences in your Outlook calendar using "Show Time As: Out of Office" , you could gently explain to them how to use the "Plan a meeting" capability in Outlook. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thanks, John. I just had one of those deer-caught-in-the-headlights moments when I missed a meeting I knew nothing about. Guess I should either a)never take vacation again <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15> or b)never use OOO.
